Had a 2 night stay at short notice last week. Owner obligingly accommodated our late arrival as we could only get the last flight ex Durban. Had a lovely room with a huge bathroom with a separate shower, all immaculate. The breakfasts are outstanding catering to every need including fresh fruit, nuts, cheeses & yoghurts. Many breads & cereals &... More

We were a party of 6 staying at the guesthouse. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and the linen top! All rooms have a safe, minibar and tea/coffee facilities. Nice English and continental breakfast are served. We will not hesitate to recommend the guesthouse to our family and friends.

Ulf and Mieke are wonderful hosts and all the staff helpful and friendly. A very convenient location, attractive and beautifully kept surroundings, and fantastic breakfasts! The only very minor criticism I have is that the shower drain gave off an unpleasant odour which tended to linger. Apart from that everything was perfect!

We spent 11 nights at the Wildolive Guesthouse and stayed in three different rooms because we travelled in between. Every room has its own charme and personal touch. You feel comfortable and welcome from the first moment. There is nothing missing. You have a pool, a small fitness room and a nice place to have a glass of wine. Cape... More

I chose the Wild Olive guest house due to the proximity of the 2 Ocean Marathon start line, and was so pleased to be able to walk to the start and walk back from the finish. The early morning breakfast for the runners was so appreciated!! The room was so clean and cozy and quiet. The staff were very friendly... More

We stayed at the Wild Olive for one night when we first arrived in Cape Town. Very easy to get to from the airport the guest house was very appealing. Our flight arrived late in the evening and there was a gracious staff member (Cecelia) on hand to greet us and show us to our room. The room was immaculate... More

The service and food was great! The guest house itself portrays a relaxed environment with stylish indoor and outdoor areas to wind down after a days work. I took a walk in Keurbooms park every afternoon that is just 200m away! Located in a beautiful area with a great view of Table mountain!

perfect location, fabulous Boutique hotel. only comment was the Power Shower had no power to use the shower properly, I struggled washing my hait with the little pressure. The rest was superb, would have loved to stay during the summer and enjoy the swimming pool.

I really did feel at home here. The staff was so friendly and accommodating and the facilities are absolutely gorgeous. I stayed for three nights and only left once for a few hours. I had everything I needed right there - a beautiful pool and backyard to tan or read, an honest bar, amazing home cooked meals (they can pick... More
